    About this recipe: Very easy to make, light and delicious. I vary the flavour by using mint or banana instead of vanilla extract.

    Sounds, good. I also tweaked it and used baking powder instead of bicarb, seems to make it lighter. - 12 May 2014

    I used orange essence instead of vanilla, and iced with buttercream with some orange zest in. The result was a lovely light cake that tasted just like a chocolate orange! - 09 May 2014
